New Mini Homes to House Veterans in Veterans Village
Veterans Village recently broke ground on a new transitional housing project for Las Vegas veterans at 50 N. 21st Street on February 26th. The mini houses of Village #2 Container House Village will be constructed out of shipping containers. These containers provide a great low-cost, affordable housing alternative for our community’s veterans.
This organization strives to create an environment specifically for United States Veterans. This includes housing as well as a 24/7 crisis center for those suffering mental illnesses. They have created local public and private partnerships to provide supplies and services for the residents.
Various community leaders, including Mayor Carolyn Goodman, where in attendance and had the opportunity to tour a model of the future container homes.
Our Glen Lerner Gives Back team looks forward to supporting Veterans Village in their efforts to benefit the lives of local veterans throughout the upcoming year. We are also honored to consider Veterans Village one of our key partners in improving the quality of life for all Las Vegans.
The offices of Glen Lerner strive to give back to the community whenever they can. This is especially true when veterans are involved. Our vets deserve a home to call their own.
There are many ways that you can give back to this prestigious organization, whether it is through Amazon Smile, or through donation of a paver with a special message on it.

Ribbon Cutting Ceremony-Valentine’s Day in Veterans Village
We are proud to be partnering with Veterans Village Assisted Living for their ribbon cutting ceremony scheduled for Wednesday, February 14 from 10:30 – 11:30 a.m. Multiple local dignitaries are said to be in attendance to this event, including Keynote Speaker Mayor Carolyn Goodman.
Veterans Village is a nonprofit assisted living home for veterans who served our country. This will be the opening of their 3rd campus. The amount of homeless Veterans in America is shocking and saddening which is why Veterans Village is such a worth while organization. It’s important to give back to those men and women who have given up so much to serve our country and fought for our freedom. The Veterans Village mission is “Serves Those Who Have Served with Respect and Dignity
To keep with the spirit of Valentine’s Day, we ordered 100 red roses have been ordered to be passed out to all of the women in attendance along with 250 cupcakes from The Cupcakery. Why not spend the designated “day of love” giving back and showing love to those in need? This is a great organization and we hope our community embraces it as much as we have!

Philanthropic Philosophy Fuels Champion Center’s Back-to-School Event
A few days before school started our GLGB team sponsored the Fuels Champion Center’s “Hope Las Vegas” Back-to-School event. Our Las Vegas injury team was attracted to the Champion Center’s community outreach philosophy of loving their community, which was demonstrated at the event where they admonished volunteers to consider the visitors as “honored guests” and not visitors. This one-word description set the mood for the entire event whereby visitors felt welcomed as “honored guests.” A wise man once said that “the heart of the matter is a matter of the heart;” and the heart of the volunteers made the difference between a good and a great community outreach event.
Another great saying is that “actions speak louder than words.” The results from the event reveal the Champion Center’s commitment to love on its “guests,” where the mindset led to action where over 4,000 backpacks were given to needy children, 200 received haircuts, and 128 received free medical treatment. Every one of the thousands of guests received the love-of Christ through the hands and hearts of the volunteers who were committed to loving their neighbors as honored guests.
Like the Champion Center, we at Glen Lerner Gives Back are committed to giving back to the neighborhoods where our clients live. The lawyers and support staff of our Las Vegas personal injury firm came out in force to join the Champion Center volunteers as together we served thousands of our neighbors. A good epitaph of the event can be summed up as “neighbors helping neighbors.” As our organization’s name suggests, we believe the heart of a champion is always focused on giving back!
The Champion Center
The Champion Center’s motto is “loving God, and loving others,” and the back-to-school event was a beautiful illustration of this motto in action. The Champion Center is located at 3900 East Bonanza in East Las Vegas near the Nellis office of Glen Lerner Injury Attorneys. For more information, please go to their website or contact us today.
Glen Lerner Merrillville Provides Supplies for Miller Elementary School
Miller Elementary School received a donation of backpacks that were filled with school supplies, including pencils, crayons, and paper, and distributed to students on the first day of school. It was all made possible through a partnership between Crossroads Connects, the charitable arm of the Crossroads Regional Chamber of Commerce, and Glen Lerner Injury Attorneys with offices in Merrillville. Miller staff provided the chamber with the list of supplies at the end of the last school year. Chamber members as well as the Glen Lerner Attorneys ordered the supplies in bulk and donated hours assembling the 365 backpacks at Lerner’s Maywood office. The Miller Staff and students are overwhelmed with joy over this unprecedented donation. This will also help to make sure that the Miller students are successful learners everyday. This partnership is amazing and it will continue to impact every student, everyday.
